How can we know the deeds of the devil from the deeds of God. The work of the Devil from the work of God. How do we discern if something that happens in our lives is from God or from the Devil. When we suffer how do we know if the suffering is from God meant to make us right with God or from the devil, a delusion? What I mean is I often have the impression that I am suffering all sort of afflictions and injustices, unjustly. What is the purpose of that suffering of mine? How can I know where it comes from? I don't have an valid answer as to why I am suffering what I am other than suffering unjustly. Also how can we know is our joy is from God or from the devil?
